Meliorative Crutch Design / Medical Devices

Meliorative Crutch Design
Meliorative Crutch Design

Assembling with an adjustable plank is the greatest feature of this crutch. The corresponding users usually should hang one foot in the air while their walking, and after a long walk or a long-playing standing their injured foot will be awfully tired. Therefore, the plank which is assembled for users to put their knees on, is propitious for the injured foot to temporarily get a proper rest. What's more, the structure of this plank is simple, and it is made of sponge that is comfortable enough. In addition, the plank can be retracted vertically by means of mechanical spring which is set under the plank when we don't need it.
